Team news - Ipswich vs Reading

It's a trip to the East of England for the Royals tomorrow afternoon, as they prepare to face Mick McCarthy's Ipswich Town - here is the team news for the game.

Ipswich will once again be without hot prospect Andre Dozzell who is sidelined with injury, while young midfielder Luke Hyam is also injured for the hosts. Striker David McGoldrick should shake off a knock to be involved, while both Joe Garner & Dominic Iorfa will push for starts.

Jaap Stam will once again consider naming an unchanged side for a fifth straight game. Midfielder John Swift still wasn't fit enough to make the bench on Monday, so is expected to miss out once again, while young striker Sam Smith is also still absent with injury.

Winger Garath McCleary could also be back in contention to make the bench after returning to training in recent weeks, but is severely lacking in match fitness. Jordan Obita remains the only long-term absentee, while Callum Harriott and Joseph Mendes remain sidelined.
